Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

I have a very old HP LC3 netserver. It was in my office, and I have moved it to my home. I would like it to communicate with my printer in order to print out documents. Can it be connected directly to my...


Add the printer to the wireless router as another node via DHCP. Then add the printer by the IP address. Your server does not have wireless so it will need to be connected to the router via network cable.

Or, you attach the printer directly to the server via parallel port (RS-232) cable. Or upgrade the server with an USB port, and connect it that way. gl

Set up wireless


Wireless Method:
  • Make sure your printer has wireless network adapters or a wireless router.
  • Power on the printer and wireless router.
  • Configure the printer to connect the wireless router.

--Enable the DHCP option on the printer. Obtain the IP address automatically.
--Configure the DHCP server of wireless router. Again, assign the IP address automatically.
  • Verify connectivity. Try doing some test prints. If it doesn't work, check the IP addresses.

Network Method:
  • Assign the printer to a wireless network. Go to "Start" and click on "Devices and Printers."
  • Click on "Add a printer".
  • Click on "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer."
  • Select the wireless printer from the list. Click "Next."
  • Allow Windows to successfully connect the printer. Again, click "Next."
  • Click "Finish" to complete the process. If you have multiple printers on your network, set this one as the default. Verify the connection by clicking "Print a test page."

How do I add a printer to my wireless network?


You would have to install a wireless print server, like a Netgear WGPS606... It has USB ports that you would connect your printer to... You could actually replace your current wireless router with this one or chain one with the other!! Or your other option would be to buy something like a TRENDnet TEW-P1UG wireless USB2.0 print server, with this you can make use of the router you have now... But either way they basically cost the same! Hope this helps!!

Wireless printing


Check the printer's manual if the software of this printer already supports winVista. If it is, you may connect the printer directly to the PC and check if you'll be able to print.

Hope this helps!

You will have to add a print server to your printer. The best one for your router and printer would be the D-Link RangeBooster G™ Multifunction Print Server (DPR-1260)
